Promote windows sever 2016 to DC- Domain Functional level still show Technical preview RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I downloaded windows 2016 from MSDN that uploaded Oct 12,2016.

    After installing the OS (Datacentre version) and AD DS, I tried to promote the server to DC, when I want to choose the Domain and Forest functional level, it show Technical Preview. I believe is should shows 2016 not Technical Preview since it is the evaluation copy.
    I do not know if there is a newer version of the windows 2016 image.
